    It took me a while to decide on a new roof, but Bryce was very patient. Never pushed for me to make a decision. Once I bit the bullet, the roof replacement was scheduled within 2 weeks.
    The crew was very professional and correct. Will,
    … More the supervisor, checked in regularly to make sure there were no issues during the work. He even went to the store and replaced the vent cover in the master bathroom after it fell out due to the movement on the roof.
    The new gutters will be installed in a few days, but I'm sure there will be no issues either.
    Great company. Very competent crew. Competitive pricing (Olympus came in slightly higher, but they use well trained installation crews and the best materials. They also replaced the roof in 1 day, including clean up). Great customer service. Last but not least, Bryce is a very professional, friendly, knowledgeable and trustworthy salesman.
    Definitely recommend Olympus Roofing and Bryce Feist.

    Bryce at Olympus Roofing gave my roof a quality inspection both outside and inside the attic. He made useful suggestions for repairs and discussed what replacing the roof down the road would entail. He was very helpful; I used Olympus Roofing … More for some small repairs and will definitely call them again when the time comes for replacement.

    I was very happy with the entire process of having Olympus complete our roof replacement. The explanation of the materials and process was thorough. The estimate was fair compared to another bid we received. The time frame from the consultation … More to install was fast, so it was completed before bad weather became an issue. There was good communication through the process. The crew did the job in just over a day, and cleaned everything up very well. The roof looks beautiful and I'm glad we went with Olympus Roofing.

    Carson with Olympus was great to work with. He was the only contractor to immediately get back to me and quickly get out to my place to look at a leak I was having around my chimney. He promptly gave me a quote and was able to get a repair … More done to prevent further damage. He answered all of my questions either by phone, text, or e-mail. I also liked that he could use a drone to inspect my roof even when the weather was such that he couldn't get up on it himself.

Ice Dam Removal / Heat Cable / Snow Retention Services Sandy and Salt Lake City

As local Sandy and Salt Lake City roofers, Olympus Roofing understands that our community receives it’s fair share of rain, hail, sleet and snow. According to the National Weather Service, the city of Salt Lake has received over 400 inches of snow during the 2022-2023 winter season, well above the national average. While white winters may be beautiful; snow, sleet and ice can cause a bit of havoc on your property, especially your roof.

The Olympus Roofing team has diligently been serving the greater Salt lake area for the last 20 years and in all those years we’ve recognized that ice dams are a common problem for homeowners in the area.

What Is An Ice Dam?

Ice dams are an accumulation of ice on various parts of your roof, depending on the slopes. They tend to occur most often near the roof edges. When the layers of snow on your roof melts, this water collects and freezes again forming an ice dam.

Dangers of Ice Dams

Ice dams place tremendous pressure on the roof structure of your home. The moisture of these dams also significantly damages your shingles, gutters and downspouts. Melting ice may cause leakages in your home if there are gaps and holes in your roofing system. And for those who are not careful, you also risk being hit by falling icicles and large chunks of ice breaking off as it heats up.

Ice dams form when warmth from within the home melts the bottom layer of the snow on the roof, sending water trickling down to the edge of the roof. Upon crossing the “heat wall” or an area where heat is no longer escaping the structure, the water freezes, clogging gutter and causing the water to pool. This may allow water to spider under the shingles as it freezes, eventually finding its way into the home. Installation of a bituminous waterproofing membrane referred to as “ice guard” alleviates this problem.

Effective Ice Dam Removal By Olympus Roofing

At Olympus Roofing, we believe that the safest and most effective way to remove ice dams is with the power of steam. Fighting fire with fire as some would say. The ice dam steaming system that we use functions using high temperatures but low pressure. The high temperatures effectively and efficiently melts the ice on your roof, this water either evaporates or drains away from your home. The low pressure of the steaming system protects your shingles as high pressure systems tend to chip away at your roofing materials.
